Caveat emptor
Tutors, please be aware of internet safety. We recommend only accepting work in the local community where there is less of a chance for fraud. We have had reports of tutors being solicited to work with students outside of the US, which seem to involve scams. For more information on possible internet scams, visit the IC3 website. Additionally, please be conscious about giving out personal telephone numbers or addresses; we also strongly suggest meeting tutors/tutees in a public place.
